There is no denying that Small SUVs are starting to take over the world. The all new Hyundai Kona is a bit of a looker, although some may argue that its not. The Premium GT is equipped with an adaptive 4-wheel drive, meaning improved fuel economy for a car putting power to all 4 wheels. The Kona comes with plenty of equipment, but lacks practical rear and boot space compared to its rivals.
